We only ate at this famous hostel but received a very favourable impression of the place. It’s not offering the same experience as the Tucan Hotel that is near Uvita bus station; Flutterby is more of a party/yoga/hippy vibe with a focus on sustainability, and it’s very close to a magnificent beach yet quite far from the bus station, services, and fresh water swim spots. We loved the friendly welcome and the comfort-style food is superb with plenty of vegan options. There’s an extensive choice of local craft beers too, as well as all you’d expect from a great bar. We enjoyed staying at the Tucan but we also regret that we didn’t stay here. Next time we will! Here’s some details about our Flutterby meal.

The bar and restaurant blends into one huge space, and the vibe is a very welcoming one. The dorm and private rooms lead off from this centre point.
The entrance.
The yoga studio, at the other end of the ground floor to the bar.
This very helpful list of onward travel options was near the entrance. The staff were happy to answer all our questions about moving on from Uvita, even though we were only eating there.
Another excellent list! We like the fact that Flutterby serves lots of local beer, and explains it in a clear way. I want to know what it is, and how strong it is. Sorted!
The stout was as lively as the label.
Food time!
We had the burger and yucca fries, the felafel plate, and the patacones and black bean dip. All of it was vegan.
The burger was a great size and tasty.
The felafal plate, plenty of differing tastes and textures there.
To finish with we had the densest vegan cheesecake ever. Amazing.

It was a great meal. The food was served quickly, and by very friendly staff.
